Please share my story!!
All of my Lyme treatments are out of pocket, insurance does not cover my treatments so I must fundraise. Donations can be made here or at TD bank "Carly's Lyme treatment fund"

Thank you all for your love and support

I am a 22 year old Vermonter suffering from late stage 3 Neuro Lyme Disease. I was bitten June 2012 and was misdiagnosed 7 times. In January 2013 I was diagnosed with 3 different positive tests through labs IGX and Quest. I have tried months of antibiotics and homeopathic treatments with little to no improvement. My symptoms have become debilitating. daily I suffer with: joint pain, joint swelling, body aches, short term memory loss, slurred speech, joint stiffness, mood swings, depression, disturbed sleep, dizziness, poor balance, difficulty with speech, fatigue, difficulty walking, difficulty with thinking, headache, blurred vision, muscle pain and cramps, numbness and tingling. It’s hard to live my life as a young adult and run my pet grooming business as I am in such chronic pain each day. We are hoping to raise money to pay for my treatments which are almost always out of pocket, transportation and lodging.
Lyme treatments are not covered by any insurance so we are forced to pay out of pocket.


I currently see Lyme specialist Dr. Steven Phillips in Wilton CT. My consultation was$800 out of pocket. All of my follow ups are $400. Dr.P has also diagnosed me with Tulerimia (rabbit fever) he also believes I have cat scratch fever. In 2012 my 22 year old boyfriend from Milton VT passed away from cat scratch fever.. I also have been exposed to animals that may have carried it. There is a drug called Mepron that can treat all 3 disease but because lack of cat scratch tests my insurance will not cover it. It's $1000 a week and I would need a 4 month treatment.


We are raising as much as we can to help pay for my treatments. I have a big fundraiser this Ftiday called Country for Carly a country dance and silent auction at our local legion.

Please help get my story out... VT needs to a knowledge this is a real disease and people are dying from it.

Thank you in advance

Hi Carly, I read about you and Julie in the Milton Independent, and I wonder if you have explored Chaga mushroom products as a treatment. A local Chaga vendor claims he was healed of Lyme by Chaga (visit http://www.robinschaga.com/bio .html ). There is also a great book about Chaga's many healing properties called Chaga King of the Medicinal Mushrooms by David Wolfe (available at Amazon). Or google Chaga mushroom to learn about it's myriad benefits! Chaga grows on live Birch trees all around us here in VT, and I collect my own and make tea which I believe has controlled my skin cancer, as well as colds and who knows what else! Feel free to e-mail me at richdavidson1@netzero.com or the above mentioned Chaga vendor Robin Hanbridge at telycarve@msn.com. Blessings, Rich Davidson
